Tiger settles for final-round 72 at Memorial

Tiger Woods putts on the eighth green during the second round of The Memorial golf tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

South Korea's Byeong Hun An is two shots off the lead at 9 under, followed by a group of five players at 8 under that includes Wesley Bryan, Bryson DeChambeau, J.B. Holmes, Australia's Jason Day and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama.

Chasing his first win since breaking through for a maiden US Tour victory at the 2017 John Deere Classic, the former US Amateur champion DeChambeau fired a six-under-par 66 at Muirfield Village to climb to 14 under.

Still winless this year, Spieth fired an even-par 72 to finish at three over, missing the weekend.

Kyle Stanley and Joaquin Niemann shared the Memorial Tournament lead as Jordan Spieth missed the cut Friday.

Tiger Woods managed a five-under 67, which included an eagle at the par-five 11th.

A 90-minute weather day seemed to tiresome his momentum as the former world number one made pars on the next three holes but he snatched his fifth birdie at 15 before giving the shot back at the 17th to finish on a combined 139.
